"Giacomo and Magdalena*" - aka "Two for Joy | Two to Tango"

Looks a bit dodgy at the moment and the anatomy is atrocious (and I had ZERO idea how to dance the tango, but eh, I can get references for that later - NB now having got references I observe that the real poses look just as painful :P Ahwell.), but this is just a "gesture sketch" of the idea I want to carry off. This is a possibility for an art book that's being arranged, so we'll see how I manage to carry it off... They're both magpies - Giacomo (as in Casanova ;) , the male) is an Eurasian magpie Pica pica and Magdalena is a Formosan (i.e. Taiwanese) Blue Magpie Urocissa caerulea.

Giacomo is in fact a humanised version of the suave little non-humanoid magpie (back then spelled phonetically, so "Jackamo") in my abortive attempt at writing a Redwall-esque story waaaaay back when I started Uni, although he didn't have such a dignified name.

* i.e., Jack and Mags. I thought they were good, sound names for magpies... ;) Mags is obvious, and "Jack" resembles the sound a magpie makes.

Perhaps it's a bit dodgy right now (after all, it's just a light pencil sketch!) but the idea is sweet and charming enough to finish. Go for it :)
